1. The Shrine Tree Marker
Inscription. Notice that this tree is hollow and 3/4 of the wood is dead. However, 1/4 of the tree refuses to die. The limbs on the tree are evidence of the living material still within. Higher up a double top reaches toward the sky. The tree itself continues to grow and produces cones. It is a prime example of the hardy redwood species.
